Open Discourse Statement

Statement in support of free and open discourse

The Global Biodata Coalition exists to convene life science funders, biodata resource managers and others across the world in discussion and action on the sustainability of individual data resources and of the wider global biodata ecosystem.

We thrive by working together for societal benefit and to be successful leaders of change our many stakeholders need to be able to share their thoughts and ideas freely.

Thank you for your respect for each other during our virtual and in-person meetings and for giving space to a range of views and ideas. Diversity of thought and opinion is valuable and inspirational to us all.
